The Installation

Illuminating its surroundings in an ethereal glow, Radiance Towers are light sculptures that bring the viewer into a world of wonder. Each tower is over 10 feet tall with 900 RGB LEDS embedded into the structure, creating a dynamic visualization that will be stunning to see.The towers are visually stunning as there base wave shape come from years of work expressing sacred geometry into sculptural forms. Appearing as five diamonds vertically aligned the viewer can see through the 4 waves that make up each tower. Towers of Radiance will enthrall the viewer and bring them into a bizarre and hypnotic world of the Illuminated Forest at What The Festival 2016.

Project Brief

Towers of Radiance is part of the Illuminated Forms Project, which is the accumulation of 3 years of research and into expressing sacred geometry in a 3D. Illuminated Forms is my thesis project at Emily Carr University where I will be graduating from Industrial Design this May. For the previous 3 years the research has focused on the 3D shape of the tetrahedral, the inner structure of a tetrahedron/triangular-pyramid. A tetrahedral  is the most basic 3D shape possible similar to a circle as the most basic 2D shape, seven circles form the flower of life. The tetrahedral can be divided in half to from two conjoining perpendicular “V”s with an angle of 109.47, and if the “V”s are arrayed linearly they form a distinctive triangular wave which forms the lengths of the Towers. Four towers and all complimentary parts are able to fit into a box made of the white pedestals the towers are installed on
